 PUBLIC FORUM TO EXAMINE BREAST IMPLANT ISSUE SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 7
 SAN DIEGO, March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- A panel of experts will conduct a public forum to educate women about silicon gel breast implants this Saturday, March 7, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the Kaiser Permanente medical offices, 3250 Wing St., Building C Auditorium, in San Diego.
 "There has been so much in the media about breast implants -- are they safe; should women have them removed; should the FDA ban them -- that women are understandably concerned," said Kurt Bivens, M.D., a plastic surgeon at Kaiser Permanente who organized the forum. "We will discuss patient issues, myths and fears related to breast implants and answer questions at the forum."
 The forum, which is free and open to the public, will feature plastic surgeons, a radiologist, rheumatologist, KFMB-TV's Sandra Maas and a representative from the McGhann company which manufactures silicone gel implants.
 Space is limited, so call 619-528-6194 to reserve a seat.
